Abstract : A land based launch tube control panel testing and training system for a submarine's launcher interconnects with a launch tube control panel from a submarine to simulate the operation of a submarine weapons launching system to allow for launch tube control panel operational testing and operated and maintenance personnel training. In a simulation mode, a submarine weapons launch tube control panel tester and trainer is responsive to weapons launch system control data signals received from the launch tube control panel, for transmitting to the launch tube control panel weapons launching system operational data signals having a predetermined data type and data value which are a function of the received weapons launching system control data signals. In the training and maintenance mode, the submarine weapons launch tube control panel tester and trainer can provide predetermined fault simulations to allow the training of maintenance personnel, as well as test signals which can be utilized to exercise and verify the operability of a tube control panel.
